Assignment #1 (10 points):

    1. From the Mathematics department web page follow -> Faculty -> Peter Saveliev -> Personal Page -> click on Math 155. Or type saveliev.net, then go to the class page. Bookmark it! Or even better, create your own web-page with a link to the class page. This way you can get there quickly from any computer.
    2. Read the Policy.
    3. Fill in the form under Students.
    4. Try to set up a group (3-4 members) by next Friday, then e-mail the list to me. If you don't you'll be assigned to a group at random.
    5. Check out the page of Math 155 I taught last fall.
    6. Visit my office during the next two weeks to introduce yourself.
